This post is a bit of shameless sort-of-self-promotion. I'll write something big and heartfelt soon, because I'm definitely feeling the drive, especially after reading magnificent Maggie's enthuasiastic "Yay writing!" post.
But no form of web-based promotion is safe from me at the moment, as I'm trying to round up a bit of dosh for St Christopher's Hospice, where I currently work as a physio. The work they do here is phenomenal. There is so much care for every patient in there, and I feel really valued and cared for, too, as a member of staff. It's a fragile and beautiful thing, palliative care, but they have the artform mastered. There is happiness, beautiful gardens, humour, sing-a-longs, support, cake and lots of laughter, despite the fact that a lots of patients and families involved with St Christopher's have been handed some serious burdens to deal with regarding life expectancy.
The organisation really relies on donations to keep it going. I'm finishing up my work there in a little over a month's time now, but I'm wanted to show as much support for them as I could, so I'm doing the Super Hero Fun Run on May 15th. It's no London Marathon, as Paddy commented, by the time the 5km is over I'll probably just be feeling warmed up, BUT I get to dress up, thus combining my love of sportiness and silliness.
So if you'd like to chuck a couple of dollars in my metaphorical tin (100% of which will go to the hospice), go to the fundraising page at:
It's a worthy cause, I assure you. Check out the webpage here:
Thank you folks.
Back with more words soon. And hopefully a big mug of tea and some biscuits.
